More symptoms of another episode using rev 3301 on Win 2000

In Tools/Folder Options

General
Use Widows classic desktop
Use Windows classic folders
Open each folder in it's own window

View
Show hidden files and folders
Remember each folder's view settings.
*Don t* Launch folder windows in a separate process.

Scenario
Two explorer views open, each just showing the contents of the selected
folder, no treeview.
Two ShowLog panes open.
Delphi7 open with some files open in the IDE from a sub folder of one of
the Explorer view
Successfully committed a couple of changed files on the trunk WC prior
to merging from a branch.
and as happened recently, clicked on the Explorer view probably before
TSVN and TSVNCache had a chance to finish inner working to update the
folder Icons.

Effect was that both Explorer views become unresponsive. Dragging Task
Manager over the top left one view retaining Task Manager image. The
other Explorer view remained white.
Task manager showed very little activity for Explorer 0..2 in CPU column.
Nil activity for TSVNCache.
Several TortoiseProc.ex processes listed in Task Manager 0 in CPU column.
Opening new Explorer window by clicking on My Computer Icon on desktop
succeeds but it too freezes.
Was able to select and close the LogViews.
Closed Delphi OK

When TSVNCache killed in Task Manager, Desktop went blank then
repopulated and could again open Explorer views and navigate.
